SUNART HERITAGE CENTRE & COMMUNITY SPACE
Dualchas – Sunart Heritage Group formed in January 2022 with our main aim being to preserve, protect and showcase the vast heritage of Sunart district. We are a sub-group of Sunart Community Company.
It is our hope to create a permanent site where our heritage can be stored and showcased, ensuring continuation for generations to come.
The 2014 community survey showed support for a Heritage Centre in Sunart to house and interpret the ‘Sunart Archive’ and provide a focal point for those interested in preserving and promoting local history and culture. The Strontian Parish Church building is to be disposed of in the next 12 months. The Sunart Community Company and Dualchas – Sunart Heritage Group are hoping to acquire it and with grant support, refurbish the building, preserving a piece of local history (and associated graveyard) but also to create a modern archive and exhibition space, and a small function room suitable for regular worship and small events.
A feasibility study was conducted this winter to test financial viability. View the report here.
